Fall Festival of Crafts

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I participated in a craft fair that was held at one of the elementary schools, Westbrook Elementary. It started at 9 AM which meant I needed to be there by at least 8 AM in order to haul in and set up my things. I brought in my Tastefully Simple products which included some samples of Beer Bread, Gotta Lotta Garlic Salsa and other party samples which didn't need refrigeration. I also had pretzels and tortilla chips there for the sampling of all the dips. People loved it! I ended up getting 2 scheduled parties and 2 that really want to have one but couldn't figure out a date. One of the latter two wants to sign up to be a consultant! Whoo hoo! I had an order too so my day was a huge success! Many others took my card and that is the reason I was there. To get my name out there!
They provided lunch for us and it ended at 3 PM.

I had to take some pictures of my table after I had it set up. Because there was an aisle both behind and in front of my table, I made it easy for people to see what I had from either side. Here are some photos.....

Just some of my display.

From the front, the sample dishes.

But my day wasn't done yet. I still had an actual party that night at 6 PM! Yep! More to do! I drove home, unpacked the craft fair things, repacked my party things and left an hour later for the hostesses house. It was a combo party with my friend Tammy and her Lia Sophia jewelry.

Once done with that I drove home, unloaded my vehicle and plopped down in my comfortable living room chair. I was past the point of exhausted! After watching part of a movie, I woke up about 1/2 an hour later and collapsed in my bed. Not a bad days work after all.

Do I recognize that tablecloth from Thanksgivings at Mom and Dad's?! Nice display. I like the autumn-themed decorations tucked in here and there, too.

With all these sales, you've become quite the entrepreneuse, haven't you? Seems like this is something you could do to make a living even if you lived, oh, say, I don't know, in northwest ND!
